to the white house. president obama and governor romney are holding two campaign events today. with a week to go before early voting, there are signs the governor romney has quite an uphill time in this "new york times" and cbs news poll showing the nominee trailing the president by a full ten points in ohio. that is outside the margin of error. there is a solid majority of ohio voters say they think governor romney's policies will benefit the rich. only 9 percent say the middle class will be benefited. less than a third think the policies will treat everyone the same. with president obama, 8 percent say it is helping the rich and the rest divided equally. that is not good for governor romney. this comes after the secretly recorded video of governor romney, saying 47 percent feel they are owed everything by the government and they will never take "responsibility." carl cameron, the campaign dispute as lot of the numbers. >>carl: they do. they point to the fact that real clear politics has five points for an advantage when you average all the polls. the bigger dispute is how most of the pub
